FROM OUR DRAGONBOAT FRIENDS:
Hi All: Good news! The two boats are painted, on the beach and ready for our first season as the LAHDB club. Special thanks to all the players that made this happen: Al Larson Boat Yard and Mariano Bracco for giving their expert painting services gratis, Lewellen Paint for their generous paint donation and many of the new LAHDBC members for their time and labor in prepping, transportation and coverings for the freshly painted boats. It was alot of hard work, but it was worth it!Great job everybody - they look great!
LAHDB Club Open House - May 10th from 8 am to 1 pm at the Cabrillo Watersports Center in San Pedro. Everyone is invited to come down and experience Dragon Boat for themselves. Invite your friends to come as well. This will also be the start of our 2008 Dragon Boat season. We will be forming adult and children teams and signing up paddlers for practice sessions. The cost for a season membership is $60. That includes membership, club t-shirt, Long Beach Dragon Boat Festival (July 26th and 27th) entrance fee, insurance and practice schedule.
The Open House is another opportunity for members to get involved. We currently are in need of 8 more volunteers to help out at the open house.Volunteer needs:
- Run the food concession (fund raiser) - Help at the LAHDBC booth signing up children and adults for membership - Help with the dragon boats on the beach and in the water. - Help direct people from the parking lot to the event on the beach front.All volunteers will receive a hot-off-the-press LAHDB Club t-shirt for helping out.Please let myself, Bruce or Marie know if you are interested in volunteering. We will also need your shirt size."Crimes of the Heart" Fund Raiser on May 10th (same day as the open house) @ 3:00 : If you are interested in attending the play tickets are available for $35. It is going to be a great afternoon of comedy/theater and I hope you are planning on attending.
Please let myself or Bruce know how many tickets you would like for the performance. We have many great prizes to give away at the intermission: movie tickets, gift baskets, gym work-out passes, gift certificates, LAHDBC t-shirts, wines, DB paddle and more. Also, we are planning on going to go over to the Whale and Ale after the show. I hope you are planning to spend the day with the LAHDB club on May 10th. Come and meet some old friends and make some new ones! Finally, we are having a planning meeting at the Cabrillo Watersports Center on April 9th at 6:30 pm in the meeting room upstairs. If you would like to get involved with the club this season, this would be a great opportunity to see how things work.3000 Shoshonean RoadSan Pedro, CA 90731 Looking forward to a great DB season!
